Director of IT
Kit joined Luxury Yacht Group after providing application development and infrastructure support as a contractor. The opportunity to expand the services and deliver state-of-the-art solutions to LuxYachts and its customers lured him from his own consulting business to lead the team.
“I have a passion for everything technical in fact, for fun, I spend much of my personal time keeping current with the latest and greatest technology. This continuous training translates into cutting edge projects for my team that directly benefit our customers. My objective is to lead my team of engineers to provide crew and owners the most innovative apps in the industry.”
Having spent a number of years in the Cruise Ship industry provides Kit a broad perspective of both vessel and business demands. His diverse background enables him to bring aspects of both large corporate solutions and the responsiveness of a start-up philosophy to the mix at Luxury Yacht Group.
Where did the fascination with the challenges of technology begin? “At the University of Kansas. My degree is in Aerospace Engineering – but I balanced all that nerdy science with being on the swim and dive team.”
Of course, as an alum from KU he has an unhealthy obsession with the Jayhawks basketball team. In fact, Kit is such a rabid sports fan that he spreads his enthusiasm for all playoffs with office pools and daily sports analysis!
Kit and Nila live in Fort Lauderdale. They are known for their inability to say no when large dogs need adoption. The current pups occasionally visit the office to beg treats from the team.
